Coordinating Window Treatments: Which Fabrics Go Where?
Before making your final selection of window treatments, consider whether the fabrics suit the roles you want them to play. Are they in the mood to enhance your rooms’s style? A luxurious moire is unmistakably formal, a tweedy homespun more rustic, and a watercolor print more lighthearted and romantic. Is the fabric right for your application? A heavy canvas, for instance, won’t have the ability to drape required for pinch-pleated curtains, but could make a great roll up shade. Similarly, filmy gauze can’t hold up as upholstery on the sofa, but it makes wonderfully gossamer curtains.
CHOOSE FABRICS THAT FIT YOUR ROOMS-
The array of natural. synthetic, and fiber blends makes it possible for you to match fabrics to very individual needs.What’s your climate? This is especially important in choosing drapery fabrics because of their insulative potential and sunny locations; natural fibers trap heat, and light-hued, tightly woven opaque fabrics reflect sun’s rays. If humidity is a factor, look for fibers with less absorbency. Do you want easy-care, soil and stain resistance in, for example, family room upholstery? Then look for fabrics which are cleanable and have protective finishes or apply a spray on finish yourself. If a fabric will be used near a wood stove or fireplace, ask for fabrics with flame resistant finishes.
When coordinating window treatments with chair covers:
- Fabrics for Upholstered Furniture: Chintz and cotton, used for light upholstery; brocade, corduroy, damask, used for heavier upholstery; chenille, flannel, jacquard,homespun tweed, tapestry, ticking, toile de Jouy, twill, velvet and wool
- Fabrics for Draperies: Lightly glazed chintz, light-to-medium-weight cotton, lightweight corduroy, damask, dotted swiss, faille,flannel,homespun tweed, linen, plisse, silk, taffeta, toile de jouy, and velvet
- Standard Windows
Decorating standard-style windows is relatively easy since they are rectangular and there are no curves to navigate. However, it’s important to begin by assessing all the windows within the room. While some rooms contain identical windows, it’s more common for rooms to feature a variety of types and sizes.For example, a room may include a picture window at one end, multiple double hung windows, and a sliding door, all on different walls. Special considerations may affect the style of treatment you choose, such as windows in corners installed at differing heights on the wall. Your goal is to unify the room with the same fabric on each window and door unit, and to mount window treatments at the same heights, if possible, to create consistency and balance throughout the setting.Arch-Top and Transom Windows
If you have recently completed a renovation or purchased a new home, chances are you have a few specialty windows that give a unique architectural element to your home. While striking to look at, arch-top and transom windows provide a challenge in selecting the right window treatment that offers both beauty and function. Arch-top windows, with their sweeping curves and transom windows let in excessive light, causing glare and possible harm to textiles, artwork, and wood furnishings in the room. In addition, a large window can create black hole effectwhen the sun goes down. All of these things should be considered when selecting a proper window treatment
